Mallory Even, Owner of Metro Music Therapy, is originally from the Orlando, FL area, and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from the Florida State University. She remained in Tallahassee to complete her internship with Leon County Public Schools and upon graduation from FSU, Mallory and her husband moved to the Atlanta, GA area. For two years before starting her practice, and for three years after, Mallory also worked as a music therapist in an adult and geriatric inpatient psychiatric unit located in Snellville, GA.
Mallory is a Music Therapist-Board Certified (MT-BC), Licensed Professional Music Therapist (LPMT), and a certified Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Music Therapist (NICU MT). She has completed the 30-hour training in Counseling Skills for Music Therapists, the 50-hour Grief & Loss Music Therapy Institute, and is one course away from earning her specialty certification in Hospice and Palliative Care Music Therapy. She has been a member of the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA) since 2002, and is also a member of the Music Therapy Association of Georgia (MTAG).
Since starting the practice in late 2007, Mallory has started new music therapy programs in specialized schools and a wide variety of healthcare settings all over the Metro Atlanta area.
In January 2016, in partnership with Wellspring International, Mallory and her team established a grant-funded music therapy program entitled “Songs of Hope,” which benefits hospice patients and their families, children experiencing grief and loss, and refugees who have relocated to the Atlanta area.
Mallory’s recent accomplishments include the launching of a new Music Therapy marketing materials program called MMT PayPer, and Mallory and her team opened the MMT Academy – a music therapy continuing education academy for professional music therapists and other healthcare professionals which is approved by the Certification Board for Music Therapists.
Mallory’s principal instrument is the French horn, but she is also proficient in guitar and voice. She enjoys leading worship at her church, composing music for both children and adults, and has written, recorded and copyrighted an original CD entitled, “Favorite Day.” She has presented at National AMTA conferences, was invited to be a panelist on the Careers in Counseling & Therapy panel at the University of Georgia, and also leads music therapy wellness sessions for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta staff retreats.
